Minor Hotel Group (MHG) has announced the addition of six camps in Kenya to its portfolio. The additions are the result of the acquisition of Cheli & Peacock Group of Companies by the Elewana Collection.
The acquisition sees the six Cheli & Peacock properties -- Elsa’s Kopje, Elephant Pepper Camp, Joy’s Camp, Tortillis Camp, Kitich Camp and Lewa Safari Camp -- merge under the banner of the Elewana Collection to form a comprehensive circuit of 14 properties spanning the highlights of Northern Tanzania, Kenya and Zanzibar. The merger offers operators and agents a seamless experience when booking Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar, MHG said.
Tortilis Camp in Amboseli is best known for its views of Kilimanjaro and the local elephant population, with over 1,000 elephants in the park’s ecosystem. Elephant Pepper Camp is in the core of the protected Mara North Conservancy wilderness area. Elsa’s Kopje, famed for the views spanning across the Meru National Park, is named after Elsa the lioness, made famous by George and Joy Adamson’s book and film “Born Free”. In Samburu, Joy’s Camp is located in Shaba National Reserve and is made up of ten luxury tents. Lewa Safari Camp has a stunning location within Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, with views of Mt. Kenya to the south and the arid lowlands to the north, and the six-tent Kitich Camp in the Matthews Forest is ideal for adventurous travellers wanting to explore precious wilderness.
Cheli & Peacock Safaris tour operator will continue to act completely independently of the Elewana Collection under the leadership of founders Stefano and Liz Cheli. Stefano and Liz will focus on innovations within the Company to enhance its offering as a destination experience manager.
